I've been teaching ukulele for 5 years and it is one of my favorite instruments to play and teach! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play several chords and as time goes on you'll be able to play the songs that interest you most. I specialize in pop music and typically use the Alfred Ukulele Method for Kids books or the Hal Leonard Ukulele Books for older students. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Absolutely wonderful! I have been taking lessons from Sandra for over a year now and always look forward to it. She is very knowledgeable and sets up a comfortable atmosphere. I have learned so much and couldn't thank her enough.
Rivkah
I've been seeing Sandra for 7 years and I consistently look forward to my lesson every week. I have seen myself improve tremendously in my singing, acting, and sight-reading. Sandra provides an atmosphere of serious learning in which I have been taught how to control by voice, but she is also very personable and always up for a fun chat. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
Linda
Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.

Welcome to my piano teaching profile! I am a professional pianist offering private piano and music theory lessons to students of all levels. As a pianist 12 years of teaching experience and over 21 years of playing, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. Recently, my students have earned top prizes/marks in various competitions and exams. However, I also support students who pursue piano as their passion and hobby. I can also guide preparation for Grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams and Levels 1 - 5 of ABRSM Theory.

"I've been taking classes with Mia for a year now, and she has been the best teacher anyone could ever dream of. I was terrified of trying acting for the first time, I thought because I was starting off late in the game I may be judged, or criticized, but as soon as Mia greeted me she made me feel as though I was immediately family. She is supportive, encouraging, and will give 110% at training you for any type of acting you wish to pursue! She even met with me for multiple classes per week before big auditions. I can proudly say I am now accepted and will be attending my first choice conservatory for a BFA in Contemporary Theater! Mia has the warmest, most beautiful heart of gold that I've ever seen. Thank you for absolutely everything you've done for me, Mia. I can't wait until you can see me in my shows!"
